The yuccas are in bloom this month in Vancouver.
Watercolour painting in my sketchbook of a yucca that has grown tall enough to turn itself into a tree. This was inspired by a yucca ‘tree’ growing besides Las Margaritas in Vancouver. Snapseed photo app. Yuccas can be very stringy and that’s inspiring, as are the daggers of light that point to the centre of the plant.My drawing of a Yucca. Yuccas typically bloom every year with bell-shaped blossoms. A Yucca blossom, known in Chinese as ‘Dragon Tongue Orchid Flower’, which I have put in Chinese characters on the bottom right. The top right is my name ‘Elizabeth’ in Chinese characters. The image was run through the photo app Waterlogue and then sandwiched together with the actual photo to create more detail. I detailed the process I used in a post about turning photos of blossoms into works of art. A series of yucca blooms run through the photo app Stackables.
